UNIV OF UTAH PR: 1974
To Utah With The Dragoons is a collection of articles written by a soldier who was part of the army dispatched to Utah to quell the "Mormon Uprising." The articles were published in the Philadelphia Harold under the pen name "Utah." The first hand account is something of an 1800's version of embedded reporting. The soldier, who has some background in journalism, does a good job of giving the whole picture to many of the events, and describing in detail the flora, fauna, and his impressions of the geography, and people he encountered along his way. 230 pages, full name index.
